The Adi Granth or the Holy Scripture of the Sikhs: translated into English
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121502446; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The Adi Granth is the most sacred book of the Sikhs. Literally meaning the 'First Book', it is also reverentially called the Granth Sahib and is regarded as the authoritative scriptural work. The compilation of the Adi Granth was done by the fifth Sikh guru, Arjan, in AD 1603 and contains, besides his own writings, the compositions of the four predecessors, the gurus, Nanak, Angad, Amardas and Ramdas. Subsequently, in AD 1705-6, additions were made to the Adi Granth by the tenth and the last guru, Gobind Singh, who incorporated the hymns of the ninth guru, Teg Bahadur and enjoined that after him the Granth Sahib would take the place of the guru. In its final form, the Adi Granth contains the writings of the Sikh gurus, and also the banis of thirty-six Hindu and Muslim saints who lived between the twelfth and the seventeenth centuries. It is needless to emphasize the importance of this great religious work which sets forth the ideal of the union of the human Soul with its Maker. This can be attained by following, scrupulously the highest ethical standards and abjuring egoism without, however, renouncing the worldly activities. Besides its great religious importance, the Adi Granth is an invaluable work from the standpoint of the historian and the linguist. It provides very useful data about the social and religious conditions of India during early and late medieval times. For those interested in the development of the northern Indian languages and dialects, the Adi Granth is a veritable storehouse of information. Though the language of the Adi Granth is mainly Punjabi, Hindi and the cognate dialects it is interspersed with Sanskrit, Marathi, Persian and Arabic words. It thus throws considerable light on the problem of the ancient Prakrts and Apabhramsa and shows how the vernacular languages of northern India evolved out of them. In this arduous task of translating this voluminous and difficult work which took him seven years to complete, Dr. Trumpp was faced with many obstacles in the absence of any grammar or dictionaries. Besides consulting the granthis he also utilized the three available commentaries for completing the translation. The present volume will be of great use to the scholars as it contains, in addition to the translation of the Adi Granth, a short preface and five valuable introductory essays, the life of Baba Nanak, translated from the Janam Sakhi, a sketch on the lives of the Sikh gurus, an outline of the Sikh religion and a dissertation on the language of the Adi Granth and the meters used in the Granth. Dr. Trumpp has also included in original, as an appendix Japji or Japu-ji, the holiest portion of the Granth. Printed Pages: 866. 026942

Indian Book Painting: From Jahangir's Album in the State Library in Berlin
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054576; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 31 Cm 
The present volume resolutely monographic in approach discovers stylistic and thematic perspective with a focus on the personal oeuvre of the eminent painters of Mughal Emperor Jahangir’s (e.1605-1627) court. His period corresponded to the golden age of Mughal Art. Through the pages of this volume we grasp the great aesthetic worth and extraordinary appeal of the Mughal portraits, vibrant bird and animal studies, superb calligraphy and magnificent ornaments. The technical skills motifs and the symbolism so characteristic of this period are also discussed extensively. The volume further analyses the influence of European Renaissance art on Mughal paintings. The outstanding holding of the state library Berlin shares Jahangir’s connoisseurs enthusiasm and devotion of painting. The emperor has inscribed many of the portraits in a hand of imperial aplomb. It is understood that the present volume will lay open the Berlin collection to actuate the readers to reinterpret the miniatures afresh. Additionally, the references of an almost parallel and contemporary specimens alongside the Berlin examples will add to our understanding of the latter. Enriched by the historian’s craft, this volume is significant for the wide appeal it commands-its will not only interest art historians connoisseurs of art and those interested in the development of painting in South Asia but also serious scholars of Mughal history and culture studies.Printed Pages: 112 with 36 colours & 51 b/w illustrations. 100123

Contribution of Tibetan Language, History and Culture, 2 Vols
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8120810392; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Csoma de Koros-Symposium on Tibetan central Asian and Buddhist studies held at Velm near Vienna in 1981 demonstrated the quickly expanding development of the more and more differentiated field of Tibetan Studies. Alongside of the traditionally established fields of tibetological research history, cultural history, linguistics, and literature the new presence of research in the original theoretical contribution of the Tibetans within their religious and philosophical culture was a distinguishing feature of this conference. That the originality of the Tibetan masters goes well beyond their fascinating achievements in buddhist exegesis is clearly recognized.Printed Pages: 811. 102352

Global Shift in the World Mind: From Global Breakdown to Global Breakthrough
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184950217; Softcover; New; 
In this book, Ervin Laszlo presents a new reality map to guide us through the world shifts we are experiencing the problems, opportunities, and challenges we face individually as well as collectively in order to help us understand what we must do during this time of great transition. Science’s cutting edge now views reality as broader, as multiple universes arising in a possibly infinite meta-universe, as well as deeper, extending into dimensions at the subatomic level. Laszlo shows that aspects of human experience that had previously been consigned to the domain of intuition and speculation are now being explored with scientific rigor and urgency.There has been a shift in the materialistic scientific view of reality toward the multidimensional worldview of multiple interconnected realities long known by the world’s great spiritual traditions. By understanding the interconnectedness of our changing world as well as our changing map of the world, we can navigate with insight, wisdom, and confidence.Printed Pages: 192. 105440

Bharat Mata: India's Freedom Movement in Popular Art
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195685180; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
This volume presents a collection of display prints that were omnipresent during India’s struggle for independence, and have fundamentally revolutionized our understanding of popular pictures. Serving as a visual tour d’horizonto various facets of the Indian freedom movement, it gives readers the freedom to interpret this tumultuous historical event of the twentieth century and explore, on the 60th anniversary of India’s freedom struggle, new facets of the movement that may have gone unnoticed until now. This possibility is also accompanied by radical attempts to shift our attention: Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chennai do matter to the new visual studies, but so do such small towns like Sivakasi, Nathdwara, Meerut—locations for popular pictorial productions in colonial and post-colonial India. Well-known colonial art schools are eclipsed by the likes of the Calcutta Art Studio, Chitrashala Press, and S.S. Brijbasi & Sons. Elite artists like Ravi Varma or Abanindranath Tagore now share space with street-smart subalterns like Kondiah Raju, Rupkishor Kapur, and Yogendra Rastogi whose pictures are reprinted in this volume. Once ignored and dismissed for their vulgarity, repetitiveness, and lack of originality, these ‘god posters’, ‘framing pictures’, and ‘calendar art’ have been rescued from obscurity to occupy centrestage in new narratives where they now condition our understanding of everything from post-coloniality to the creation of India’s first nationalist political regime.

[They] throw light on the lifestyle of the Varma brothers...[and] give the readers some idea about Ravi Varma's method of working....Contains not only rare family photographs but also images of women modeling...Undoubtedly, the book will serve as an encyclopedic reference work on Raja Ravi Varma.' -- Jyotindra Jain, Professor, School of Arts and Aesthetics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, in Biblio The Diary of C. Raja Raja Varma, a journal kept by Raja Ravi Varma's brother, is one of the most important and authentic source materials on the last ten years of the life of Raja Ravi Varma, one of India's most famous artists. C. Raja Raja Varma was co-worker, assistant, secretary, and business manager to the renowned artist. Their symbiotic relationship is well known, and they are often referred to as the Ram and Laxman of Indian art. This diary, available in its full and authentic form for the first time, is a huge source of information on the accomplishments of Ravi Varma and the working of his Ravi Varma Fine Arts Lithographic Press over a ten-year period, 1894-5 to 1905. Over 1000 entries accompanied by a colour plate section of rare photographs, paintings, drawings, and art magazines of the period, showcase the artist's method of working and the influences on his art. This jour nal, which began as a travelogue during Raja Varma's tour with Prince Martanda Varma in 1894, mostly chronicles the Varma brother's journeys while they attended to their flourishing portraiture business. It also contains the only reliable source material on Ravi Varma's great industrial enterprise, the Ravi Varma Fine Arts Lithographic Press. This press, founded in Bombay in 1894, had an overwhelming impact on modern Indian aesthetics. It introduced a kind of visual imagery, which until this day defines the parameters of popular Indian visual media, especially of now much talked-about Indian calendar pictures, and also modern visual media such as cinema and television. The diary gives an insight into the internal business of the Ravi Varma Press, particularly the separation of the partnership between the Varma brothers and their financial companion Govardhan Das, and the final transfer of ownership of the Press into the hands of the German master printer Fritz Schleicher. Accompanie d by extensive notes and a chronology, The Diary of C Raja Raja Varma will be an invaluable reference to scholars of Indian art, art lovers and critics, and will appeal to the general reader in India and abroad.

Using Edu-Tainment for Distance Education in Community Work (Communication for Behavior Change: Volume 3)
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936424; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
It has long been known that carefully constructed programs delivered through the media, such as radio, television and, more recently, Internet can have a profound effect on social development and behavior. There is, however, increasing acknowledgment that media programming alone is not enough to sustain beneficial behavior change. There is a clear need for these Entertainment-Education programs to be reinforced by strong on-the-ground support from trained community workers. In remote areas of developing countries, this support must often be given through distance education. This book, which is the third in the series titled Communication for Behavior Change, provides guidelines on the preparation of distance education radio, TV and Internet programs, using the Edu-tainment format. This method of teaching provides clear, concise instruction set against an entertainment background that can attract and hold the attention of learners who frequently have no contact with a teacher or mentor. In this book, the author—a leading practitioner in the fields of both Edu-tainment and Entertainment-Education ( the format used for general public programming)—provides detailed instructions on creating distance education programs for community workers in developing countries. A special section, provided by a specialist in the field of Internet use, gives clear guidelines on IT application for distance education. The book is designed to help project managers, writers, producers, researchers, development planners, donors, NGOs and other organizations who want to make use of distance education programming for community workers. It provides clear guidelines on curriculum preparation, media selection, program format choice, script writing and review, program production, preparation of support books and participant guides and methods of audience feedback. The 6Ts of successful lesson preparation are explained along with demonstrations of how the 6Ts are used in various script samples. Printed Pages: 310. 028890

Beyond Tranquebar: Grappling Across Cultural Borders in South India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054375; Hardcover; New; New; 
A rare Indian colony of the Danish empire. A place that fostered the modern printing press and Protestant Christianity in the subcontinent. A tourist haunt that was ravaged by the tsunami in 2004. This is Tranquebar, known as Tharangampadi, a charming coastal town in present-day Tamil Nadu. Beyond Tranquebar is a collection of twenty-four essays by scholars who bring to relief the many dimensions of this town. The book takes us to seventeenth-century Denmark, as the kingdom strives to find a place in the thriving colonial enterprise. It moves east to Maratha-ruled Tanjore where gifts can shift the balance of power. It takes us to a place where ideas, textiles and furniture arrive and depart, from as far away as Serampore in Bengal and Copenhagen in Denmark—going beyond geography to contribute to literacy and education in India and alter tastes in distant Europe. This volumeexamines the place from the perspectives of a diverse range of academic disciplines—social anthropology, art history, sociology of religion, ethnography and history. It enquires into the lives of natives and foreigners, i.e. Danish, German and British, as they grapple(d) across borders both physical and cultural, in the past and the present. This collectionis unique in that it centres on activities which radiated from this important south Indian place, instead of seeing this place as an appendix to the national history of Denmark or to the Christian mission activities from Germany. Thereby, the authors and editors of this volume peg Tranquebar in its rightful place in the scholarly map.Printed Pages: 644. 101751

Patrons of Women: Literacy Projects and Gender Development in Rural Nepal
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789382264613; Hardcover; New; New; 
Assuming that women’s empowerment would accelerate the pace of social change in rural Nepal the World Bank urged the Nepali government to undertake a Gender Activities Project within an ongoing long-term water-engineering scheme. The author an anthropologist specializing in bureaucratic organizations and gender studies was hired to monitor the project. Analyzing her own experience as a practicing development expert she shows how the project intended to benefit women through teaching them literary and agricultural skills fails to provide them with any of the promised resources. Going beyond the conventional analysis that positions aid givers vis-à-vis powerless victimized recipients she draws attention to the complexity of the process and the active role played by the Nepalese rural women who pursue their own interests and aspirations within this unequal world. It will appeal to practicing development experts policy-makers researchers and graduate students of development studies gender studies social anthropology and social work. Anybody interested in women’s education and empowerment in South Asia will find this useful.Printed Pages: 278. 101503

Alive and Well in Pakistan
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0144000075; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Pakistan is a complex and difficult country to describe, but in Alive and Well in Pakistan veteran reporter Ethan Casey brilliantly portrays the images and sensations of Pakistan that he gathered while living and working in Lahore. Drawing observations from the street, university classrooms and interviews with lawyers, journalists and politicians, Casey explores what life is like in a Muslim country on the frontline of the US-declared ‘war on terror’. In the process, he manages to humanise domestic politics, attitudes in Pakistan towards the West and India, and the Kashmir and Afghanistan issues. Set within a context of recent and contemporary history, Alive and Well in Pakistan is engaging and well-informed reportage that demystifies the uneasy place that Pakistan occupies in an uncertain world.

The Story of Indian Music and its Instruments
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8175365110; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book has primarily been written with a view to stimulating interest in Indian music in the hope that English readers already acquainted with the subject might be encouraged to pursue their studies further; while new recruits might be added to the small griup of western music lovers, prepared to further the cause of Indian music. To realise these aims the author has mainly endeavoured to bring into relief some of the many attractive futures which emphasize the charm, dignity and interest of Indian music.The soul of a nation is revealed through the medium of its art, and appreciation of that art promotes sympathy for the land from which it springs.In the present work, Ethel Rosenthal has sought to explore the vast panorama of Indian music and has divided her work into various chapters dealing with: Origins, Time and Tune, the Vina and some other instruments. The Indian music has two great divisions, the northern Indian or the Hindustani and the Southern Indian or the Carnatic styles of music. The author has rightly stressed the importance of Indian music as a composite whole-albeit<-i>-if its full impact is to be comprehended, for it reflects the varying characteristics of a people who have submitted to widely divergent influences.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121507162; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Dhammapada or way of Righteousness is the name of the canonical books of the Buddhist sacred scriptures. It is written in the Pali Language. It consists of 423 stanzas. These are reputed to be the very words of Buddha. The Dhammapada commentary (in Pali Dhammapad-Attha-Katha) is ascribed to Buddhaghosa, the greatest of all the Buddhist scholastics. This aspiration is without due warrant, as appears from translator's Introduction. The commentary purports to tell us "where, when, why, for what purpose, with reference to what situation, with reference to what person or persons," Buddha uttered each of these stanzas. In so doing, the author of the commentary narrates 299 legends or stories. These stories are the preponderating element of the commentary, and it is these which are here translated.

Urban Crafts and Craftsmen in Medieval India (Thirteenth-Eighteenth Centuries)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 812151083X; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Urban Crafts and Craftsmen in Medieval India (Thirteenth-Eighteenth Centuries) discusses the development of non-agricultural production in pre-colonial cities. The author's purpose is twofold: firstly, to analyse the technological, organizational and social evolution of urban crafts in medieval India along with the economic and socio-political atmosphere in which this sphere of production existed and, secondly, to compare the above-mentioned processes with their counterparts in other medieval societies, especially the better known European ones, and thus ascertain the level that India had achieved in this sphere by the beginning of colonial era. Research material collected from various types of sources allows the author to critically re-assess the established notions of medieval Indian crafts as artistically exquisite but technologically backward and organizationally primitive. Comparative study of "stagnant" medieval Indian crafts vis-à-vis "progressive" European ones makes it possible to realize that in some industries or technological operations India did really lag behind, on others it was ahead, but all in all the level of technology and organization achieved by urban industries of medieval India was approximately equal to what Europe had during the craft and even early stage of manufactory period. As far as general socio-political conditions are concerned, this juxtaposition, however, is not wholly favourable for India. No study of medieval crafts will be adequate if the researcher concentrates exclusively on technology, forms of organization and economic relations, but forgets the people who were involved in these activities. Bearing this in mind the author undertakes the reconstruction of medieval craftsman's socio-psychological profile and tries to denote the main features of his world outlook. The book may be of interest to the scholars and students of medieval Indian history, especially in economic, social and cultural aspects, and to all those who, in their thoughts and researches, try to situate medieval India in world history.

Indian History: A Russian Viewpoint
Pragati Publications; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8173070806; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This collection of essays was compiled to offer the readers an Insight into the present state of Indian History studies in Russia. The contributors represent the national school of Indian studies which has worked out certain traditions, views and methods that may be close or similar to the approaches of the Indian or Western scholars and at the same time be somewhat different from them. The Book is divided into three thematic parts. Part 1 discusses various aspects of the centuries-long contact between Russia, India and their common neighbours like Central Asia, China and Tibet. The Relations are realized and presented in different aspects and dimensions : Economic, political and human, the latter aspect implies the influence of political links and alliances, rivalries and conflicts upon the individual lives and destinies. Part 2 comprises contributions into the field which has been the most developed in the Soviet school of Indian History studies (and in India itself too), with the main emphasis upon the agrarian sphere of socio-economic life. Part 3 brings together textual studies and the contributions to the history of ideas, socio-religious concepts and culture within a wide temporal range, embracing ancient, medieval and modern periods of Indian history. The present publication shows that the Russian school of Indian history studies (along with the fraternal schools of Indian literature and language studies) continues to exist despite many odds and dramatic changes that befell Russia in the end of the twentieth century. It draws Inspiration from the Russian public's never ending interest in Indian history and culture, from the objective necessity for both the Russian and the Indian peoples to know each other better and thus to strengthen the links of our friendship and cooperation.Printed Pages: 226. 101198

Dangerlok
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143065076; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
‘Dangerlok, she says, all dangerlok. It’s a word she’s made up and covers all occasions. Dangerous people, tiresome people, people she doesn’t like. Dangerlok.’ Rina Ferreira, middle-aged, single, lecturer of English, tentative poet and the owner of a flat in Queen’s Diamonds building, will go nowhere else in the world except for the squalid corner of Bombay she inhabits. Daily she comes across some dangerlok—and with her cigarettes and mug of jungli tea she observes everything around her and dashes off letters brimming with the details of her life to David, an old flame now in America. Funny, irreverent and sad Dangerlok is the story of an urban life, with all its absurdities, loneliness and, of course, danger.Printed Pages: 166. 026726

Purdah: An Anthology
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195666615; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
When I put on the burqua, my depraved brothers had roared so much with laughter that I came to blows with them, and instead of taking them to task, Amma had smacked me . -- Ismat Chugtai, More from the Autobiography , 1981 The toes [of a Chinese lady] are crushed up under the foot, so as to render the person perfectly lame: this is a less expensive mode of keeping a woman confined to the house, than having guards and a zenana the principle is the same. --Fanny Parkes, Wanderings of a Pilgrim, 1850 My aunt was already furious with me. She used to call me nasty names for reading the Quran so much she would say, Thank God, this girl hasn't learned anything else, otherwise she would have time for nothing at all. --Bibi Ashraf, How I Learned to Read and Write , 1899 The young wives were never allowed to see their husbands during the day but often when I played in the front courtyard I heard my name called softly and would be asked to convey love-lett ers between the temporarily separated couples. --Sunity Devee, Maharanee of Cooch Behar,The Autobiography of an Indian Princess, 1921 Using nineteenth and twentieth century texts, including personal accounts, biographies, poetry, fiction, satire, and essays, this collection puts together a vivid picture women s lives behind the purdah. There are biographical pieces by major reformers, quotations from contemporary newspapers, and a piece on film images of purdah. First-person accounts include the redoubtable Begums of Bhopal who, in or out of purdah, were excellent and enlightened rulers. And finally, there is Purdah in fiction, notably the tragic failure of an experiment in bringing one s wife out of purdah, depicted by Tagore. Printed Pages: 576. 001077

8790 Eunice De Souza (edited with an introduction)
Early Indian Poetry in English: An Anthology: 1829-1947
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0198066805; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This diverse selection of Indian poetry in English, written in the 19th and early 20th centuries, reveals the poets' experimentation with language, theme, and form. Lyrical epics, legends, ballads, and romantic and spriritual poetry, all find place in this interesting collection. Uncovering fresh biographical material and little-known details on many of the poets of the time, it includes works by: Ram Sharma, who was much sought after despite his criticism or praise of the government in his poems and newspaper articles Manmohan Ghose, whose writings include poignant lyrics on the death of his wife, and an experimental lyrical epic on the First World War, the follies of human history, and God's role in it all Kasiprasad Ghose, who created for himself the persona of a shair in the Indi-Persian tradition, indicating that though he wrote in English his stance was that of an Indian poet Joseph Furtado a bilingual poet whose poems in English and Portuguese have been praised for their simplicity and carefully cultivated artlessness Henry Derozio, whose poetry was permeated by a distinctive melancholy that may have had its source in both his personal life and in the status of his community Toru Dutt, who brings personal memory and commentary to her treatment of mythical figures and her father Govin Chunder Dutt, whose poems are poignant expressions of the pain he felt at the loss of his children. Also featured in this anthology are the Dutt brothers, Shoshee and Greece, Annaji, B M Malabari, Sarojini Naidu, Beram Saklatvala, Samuel Solomon, and Raman Vakil. Eunice de Souza's lucid introduction and brief note on each poet sets this anthology apart from other similar collections. She critiques the work of previous anthologists for underplacing the immense role played by English in shaping 19th century Indian literature as a whole. She also challenges established notions about this body of work as being imitative, tepid, and unpat riotic. This collection will be invaluable for students of English literature and South Asian studies, as well as the general reader interested in Indian writing in English. Printed Pages: 374. 013157
